Review for Azamara Onward to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

I sailed on the January 5, 2023 12 night Caribbean voyage from Miami. This was my 4th cruise on Azamara, the most recent being in July 2022 (Journey), December 2019 (Quest) and before that a 2008 voyage on Quest when the line was in its infancy. My most recent experience left me disappointed in quality of both food and entertainment, and what I consider to be a poorly managed ship that is still ...

Viking Cruises are by far my favorite with excellent customer service, wonderful accommodations and delicious food. The excursions were well planned with knowledge tour guides. We knew when we boarded our excursion bus that we were going to learn about the local area and understand the history. Both my husband and I relaxed in the steam room and revived in the snow room. It was a treat to be so ...

Viking won us over on our first river cruise last year, and our first ocean cruise was just a fine.

Wonderful opportunity to see Athens, Crete, Rhodes, Ephesus, Troy and Istanbul. Beautiful ship, wonderful food and the service that makes Viking famous. The shore excursions had informative and friendly guides. We visited three UNESCO World Heritage sites- my favorite was the medieval walled city on Rhodes. The ruins at Ephesus were incredible. We both enjoyed the many friendly dogs in ...

Viking lived up to its reputation

We chose this cruise because it touched so many of the ancient sites in Greece and Turkey that we wanted to visit. A cruise is the best way of reaching such a widely spread list of fascinating sites within a reasonable amount of time; the fact that Viking provided such a good range of excursion options was a bonus, backed up by the subject matter experts that were on the ship, providing lectures ...

This was my fourth Viking cruise and at this point, I can't imagine cruising with any other line. I didn't really choose this itinerary; it chose me through an offer I couldn't refuse. I love the Viking ships and I love knowing exactly where I am and where to go as soon as I step on board. I get the greatest sense of homecoming each time I return. It's like a beloved vacation resort that takes ...

There were several factors that attracted us to this cruise. The itinerary was excellent and was very well paced. Our interests focus more on discovering and exploring new places, than on the "at sea" cruising experiences. This cruise had the perfect balance of both. Viking's all inclusive pricing was another major factor. The included shore excursions were very good and the anytime ...

A Greece based cruise company that specializes on cruising the Eastern Mediterranean and Greece islands. Their ship is old, actually 42 years old, but still in good condition. It is small compared to all the other companies ships. If you look up the history of this ship, you might decide to go with another company. My advice is don’t, cause we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. This was a back to back ...

Ancient Greece in style and comfort.

We had always wanted to explore Ancient Greece. This made it easy and in style. Having a single room, being able to unpack our luggage once was wonderful. The food was excellent and the ship amazing. The maintenance and upkeep were impressive and the sights from the decks, lounges, food venues and our balcony were breath taking. The seas were smooth and the captain and crew were constantly trying ...

This trip was on my birthday bucket list and I have looked forward to this trip for many years! The ship is beautiful, restaurants excellent, food variety excellent, Chef Ivan's cooking class was fun, entertaining, and a good learning experience and staff was exceptionally responsive and always upbeat. Overall a great time with two exceptions: (1) our trip to Volos, Greece was disappointing ...

We chose to see Greece on the Viking ship Venus because of the itinerary. We went in December, the “Quiet Mediterranean” time. We were not disappointed. The scenery was still beautiful with flowers blooming, olives and oranges on the trees and best of all, no crowds! We chose the 4 day pre cruise extension in Athens which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide for 3 ...
